Roseanne’s comments were racist

Roseanne Barr’s recent comments about Valerie Jarrett, a former senior advisor to President Obama, were incredibly racist and mean-spirited. They rivaled what the KKK has said for decades about blacks or what our own Congressman Dana Rohrabacher said a week ago about gays buying homes. 

It is especially ironic that ABC cancelled Roseanne’s hit show Tuesday – the same day 8,000 Starbucks closed for anti-bias training. One of the essential threads that holds this nation together is the principle that all men (and women) are created equal. The sooner people like Roseanne, members of the Klan or Rohrabacher honor and celebrate this, the sooner America will become a more perfect Union.
